. talk to your hospital, and they will tell you defensive medicine occurs right here and in every community across america. if they make a mistake, they know they are going to be taken to court, but it is the doctors doing two procedures instead of one or checking into a hospital instead of outpatient service. we can talk about health care plans, the opportunity to buy health insurance. we can talk about the opportunity of allowing bigger pools to be created, expanding programs so we have more family practice. these are ideas we are willing and ready to prepare. we are not allowed to. >> senator tester, there are polls that show that montana and steve not like affordable care act. how can you sell it? >> that is the bottom line were you have a pre-existing condition. i am glad the congressman talk about selling across the state lines, about increasing general practitioners and family practice in the health-care bill. there is a lot of stuff in the health-care bill. i always get accused of not reading it. the health-ine isn' care bill extends health care for eight years. the mistak

? >> reporter: they've got a plan for that, too, doreen. the department of defense will have trucks outside polling places around new jersey where there is no power. so you'll go to your regular polling place, if it doesn't have power, you'll see a truck that will say, vote here and you'll fill out a paper ballot. mail-in voting has also been extended. they've asked county clerks to remain open saturday and sunday and you'll be able to do a mail-in ballot all the way up through tuesday. >> thank you, jim rosenfield, reporting live from new jersey. >>> workers in venice, italy, to stop the worst flooding there in two years. tourists are wading through thigh-high water today. high tides have left about 60% of that city under water. the water levels are now about 4 1/2 feet above normal. crews are building movable levees to protect venice from high tides in the future. but those levees won't be finished until year 2014. >> that's an incredible sight. is that storm related? or is that -- >> i haven't looked at the weather over there, but you're talking about 4 1/2 feet above high tide, that's q
and so-called defense. would you agree that we need reform this as well, it is nothing that would save us money their? >> yeah, that's okay. i think that there are two sides of the same equation. rand paul says that we cannot cut the debt or do something to address the deficits without looking at domestic spending and four in spending. that's how we will have to compromise. would you come up from the liberals perspectives they we need to do something with the entitlement system. maybe some way to save money. >> we have done that. obamacare is deficit reduction. it quantifies specifically because a lot of it is experimental. most folks who look at this thing the main drivers of deficit and debt is excessive health care spending. he doesn't deny your health care that you need. the obamacare plan is to try on a bunch of things and see what works the best. let's learn as we go. so it strikes me as very shortsighted. even if you don't like it from the get-go, i was not onboard in 1996, we gave it a shot. in some ways, it worked better than i thought it would. but it was good to try it and see
or a third-party leaks sensitive national defense information, that is really our focus. i mean, i am not aware of cases in my district where an allegation is by the defense or a third party that there was something and toward going on on behalf of the information that was leaked. and so, you know, as ken said, there are numerous structures in place these days for whistleblowers to report information. that is true, even in the justice department. our former inspector general is here, and the hajis have structures in place, have structures in place to receive those kind of allegations of waste, fraud, abuse, you know, illegal activity, what have you. and it seems to me that that is -- that is the proper recourse if the government employee believes that something untoward is going on with the structure of the congress. and i don't think that the justice department would, you know, would necessarily expect to get a referral from an intelligence agency and a case involving this sort of thing. >> let's take a couple of questions from the audience. i ask you to please be sure and to the poi
to the future in as we look at a new defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are, defense strategy, i also remind everybody that wall street will be downsizing during this time. the army, who at the beginning of calendar year 12 was popular will go down to 490,000 in the active component by the end of 17. we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army, and we are now looking to the future. one of the main things is granted make sure we have the right mix but i always talk about fashion executive arm and i really pay a lot of attention to. that's in strength, modernization and readiness. because in general terms those are the drivers of our budget. went to keep those imbalance. we want to learn from the lessons of the future, past drawdowns. some of the lessons that you can't get out of balance, because you get out of balance you start have been unready army. which leads to a hostile army, and, of course, was talk about the army of the task force and its impact and is an preparedness as it was asked to go into korea post-world war

:00 p.m., the president, vice-president and defense secretary, leon panetta, meet in the oval office. >> that's an hour after the attacks began. at that time they would have had a drone and a video feed from a drone being fed back to washington. >> fox news national security correspondent, jennifer griffith. >> the problem is don't forget that video from a drone is taken from an incredible distance. ground.t have clarity as to who you see figures moving. it's hard to tell friendly from faux. >> 6:00 7'm. another e-mail states that a terror group with ties to al qaeda claimed responsibility on facebook and twitter. administration officials later say a posting on social media and is not in and of itself evidence. 11:5 p.m. another chilling e-mail. subject line, benghazi shelter location also under attack. the next morning, september 12, president obama addresses the nation from the rose garden and what he says or doesn't say will become a hotly debated issue over the next days and weeks. >> since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all
now look to the future and look at a new defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy, i also remind everyone that we are also going to be downsizing during this time. the army, who at the beginning of calendar year 2012 was 570,000, will go down to 490,000 in the active component by the end of 2017. we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army, and we are now looking to the future. one of the main thing is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix. i always talk about my three rio stats that the secretary of army and i pay a lot of attention to. end strength, modernization, and readiness. because in general terms those are the drivers of our budget. we have to keep those in balance. we want to learn from the lessons of future -- past draw downs. some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance. because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army. which leads to a hobbled army. we talk about task force smith and its impact and unpreparedness as was asked to go into kor
the elites, the incumbent industry. he didn't say that. in fact, he was a courageous guy. he cut defense budgets by 20% in the late 1950s and those defense cuts, budget cuts in the late 1950s or the number one reason we have silicon alley. a plot of radio engineers had moved out there. it's a beautiful part of the country. suddenly they didn't have jobs and those people said well, we want to stay here and they created eventually intel and all the rest of that, right? so we were in a very tenuous moment. at a financial crisis. there is a financial crisis that led to the crisis in ottawa industry. adding on top of that psychologically the failure of the big three automakers, tough. tough call. by the way, i don't know what anybody in the presidential election mentions this as a bush program. i have a chapter in my forward. i'm not concerned about partisan politics. we need to get history right. start on one administration continue to the other. that's not what it's about either. but what happened if we we let it go? it would've been on the manufacturing access, all these contracts out the
to the future and as we look at a new defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy i also remind everyone that we will be downsizing during this time. the army who at the beginning of calendar year 12 was a 570,000 will go down to 49,090,000 in the active component by the end of 17 so we have significant deployment commitments. we are downsizing our army and we are now looking to the future. one of the main things is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix so i talk about rea stats and the secretary of the army and i really pay a lot of attention to it. end strength, modernization and readiness. in general terms those are the drivers and we have to keep those imbalance. we want to learn from the lessons of the future of past drug downs and some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army which leads to a hollow army and of course we always talk about in the army task force and its impact and unpreparedness as it was asked to go in to korea forced world
occasions they were told to stand down and to not go in there. defense secretary leon panetta said we simply didn't have enough information for individuals to go into that zen. what do you make of all of this? >> we're in the stage now of conflicting explanation by the administration. we are long past the point of confusion about what happened on the terrorist side. we know it was a planned terrorist attack. this mohammed video explanation which was always foolish is out of the picture. but now the administration is saying different things. this fox report about the cia denying additional help telling its agents there to stand down was contradicted yesterday by the cia itself. so general petraeus is saying it wasn't the cia who denied the request for additional assistance, implying it was somebody at a higher level of authority. and the point you make about defense secretary panetta is also important. jason chaffets, congressman from utah said last night on the hannity show that he spoke with general carter ham, the commanding general of the after infantry -- africon. he said i was never ask
defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy, i also remind everyone that we are also going to be downsizing during this time. the army, who at the beginning of calendar year 2012 was 570,000, will go down to 490,000 in the active component by the end of 2017. we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army, and we are now looking to the future. one of the main thing is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix. i always talk about my three rio stats that the secretary of army and i pay a lot of attention to. end strength, modernization, and readiness. because in general terms those are the drivers of our budget. we have to keep those in balance. we want to learn from the lessons of past draw downs. some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance. because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army. which leads to a hobbled army. we talk about task force smith and its impact and unpreparedness as was asked to go into korea post-world war ii. we don't want that to happen again
to national security, and that no court has ever accepted a defense of an proper of a document, and that millions of federal employees sign nondisclosure agreements when they're ready and classified programs, saying that they realize that disclosure of the classified information will damage the national security, it's actually quite hard to see why most disclosures of classified info aren't at least potentially prosecutable under the espionage act main section. moreover, this not just the espionage act. there are a number of the statutes, criminal statutes. perhaps most notably 18 -- is the general that and conversion statute. it criminalizes a theft conversion of property or other things of value of the u.s. government. most circuits, although there's some split, reader that should cover intangible information including classified information as well as tangible documents. so 641, and most of the country, seems like you could catch all classified information leaks, and much more. and, finally, the whistleblower laws are very little protection for defendants in these cases. in
-- [inaudible] and given that we have very recently, only last night, met with the secretary of defense. would the prime minister meet with me and other interested members to discuss this issue? >> i'm always happy to talk to colleagues about this issue, as i know the ministry of defense and the secretary of state is. as he knows, we've had to make difficult decisions to put in place the future structure of the army with 82,000 regular soldiers and a larger reserve of 32,000 territorial army soldiers. i think that is right. clearly we've had to make some decisions about the regiments and battalions, and we were trying to save as many as possible. i think the proposals have taken that into account but, of course, the defense secretary will go on listening to representations. >> [inaudible] >> mr. speaker, will the prime minister confirm that the changes to child benefit due to be introconstitutioned in january -- introduced in january this year, next year, is -- that the cost of that, the overall cost is very much over 100 million pounds? >> the changes that we are making to child benefit where
have some defense contractors as well. security is always a big issue. for example, my parents were both world war ii vetrans. you find a lot of veterans in new hampshire. the important thing is to look at the record in comparison to record. president obama has a great record on national security and taking down the leadership of al qaeda, our enemies. people came into our country and killed 2000 of our citizens. at the same time, look at mitt romney in what he is proposing is trillions of dollars in defense spending that the military is not even asking for. he is looking at the old way of conducting military affairs. he is still talking about the ways the navy operated in 1917, as opposed to the security threats that face us today in the country in 2012, and what is the most effective way of protecting our people and our country in 2012. look at the rhetoric, as opposed to the record. if you look of the record, you will support president obama. host: kathy sullivan with the democratic national committee, thank you for your time. we will continue our conversation about the state of
there is a bser, i can tell. president obama is rattled on the defensive. he's running on empty and has nothing left but attacks and insults. with just 11 days ago before election day both camps feel the pressure. likely voters favored romney over the president by one point in a "abc news" washington post. and five points in in the latest gallup tracking poll. an american research poll showed the president with a two-point edge. we should know next week whether the singer meat loaf at a rally last night shift the balance of weight in that key state. a purple poll gave thethe one-point engine in cool and showed him tied with romney at 47-47 in virginia. the republican-leaning rasmussen gave obama a two-point lead over romney in florida. david axelrod still seems confident of a obama win leaving romney to place to go. in my view we have got the lead and the ball. the question is how does he change that now. maybe so, but the job numbers that come out the friday before the election still have the potential to change the dynamics in this very tight race. for administer on this speech the every tigh
get word tonight that michigan is about to get a defensive and paste from the president. a state he thought he had lock down. we will find that who is expanding the map and give his blessing one week from tonight. lou: thank you. our chief white house correspondent. the campaigns may be at a standstill, but the candidates now have i great deal of work to do. well, much more on the political campaign, hurricane sandy's impact on the selection. it will be talking with the "a-team" and the role of the clintons in this campaign. bill clinton showing up almost everywhere. the administration's less than transparent you of benghazi. best-selling author ann klein. extensive damage through the eastern seaboard, the cost to rebuild a staggering as well. liz macdonald with our report. record-breaking sandy stranding the residence of the country's largest city, forcing the closure of subways, buses, bridges, tunnels. how long before normal becomes normal. former new york governor george pataki joins us next. ♪ with my friends, we'll do almost anything. out for drinks, eats. i have very well f
with what mr. gregg said. the natural resources defense council ranked two of the beaches among best in the country for two years in a row. >> do have any advice on how to deal with these issues in the state? >> one of the students is my daughter. she is interested in these issues. i think delaware is a tremendous place. we have beautiful places, a beautiful environment and we have to work hard to make sure we're protecting that. i think a great environment is a bonus in terms of economic development. gov. peterson past the coastal zone act. people thought that was an economic -- it was an anti-jobs. it turned out to be the opposite. because we have such a beautiful delaware bay, businesses want to be here. that is why we're fake -- focused on the bayshore initiative. one of the objections i have is the thing of the power plant in the coastal zone. the pollutants are sulfur trade we have done is we have waived the requirement to put that manufacturing facility in the coastal zone. we did it under some crazy theory that this was great energy. i would say that jack -- let's follow the
. there are some challenges at the aerospace and defense industries , where classified material is to be protected. but in the engineering field, the banking field come in the telecommunications field, the education field and the consulting and providing its services and maintenance and operations and logistics field, the opportunities there limited only by the imagination. could you elaborate a little bit on how this is going in your view and for boeing in particular for seizing this opportunity and taking saudi arabia and students before they returned to the kingdom, where they expected to know a lot more than actually they would know, unless they have the practical hands-on experience. >> well, it's going well in dealing with the initiative of leadership and american firms we are seeing some success. boeing has a london presence as mro facility there in the airport. so they have a foothold to do that. i mention emd. this last summer and across the company summer high your program for students. they've got a 60 plus year presence there, so bill swanson, ceo clearly understands the value. here's
on defense and more than the pentagon says we need. $25 trillion tax cuts would make president george w. bush look like a banker. he must have been asleep at the switch. you said like jerry mcguire "show me the money." you are the business guy. see me back after the election. who can take you seriously? here is my budget although it is not. see me about it after the election. the reason is there are only three options. if you want to repeal tax exemptions you have to cut the tax exemptions on the middle- class and governor romney says he will raise those taxes. or you can do what they have always done in just let the deficit explode again. when the economy goes it'll be a problem. or you could just gut the federal budget. gut funding for education. gut the student loan program. i spent $3 billion of your money to separate the human genome. he know how much economic activity it has generated? $790 billion. barack obama wants to raise it. they want to cut its. one thing they have not disavowed is they intend to cut medicaid by 33% over 10 years and get back to the state of ohio. medicaid provid
online chat, the question is last week the defense of marriage act was struck down by the courts. do you support this law, and do you believe that marriage is only between man and a woman? brad schneider? schneider: i believe two people -- life is hard. raising a family is hard, having a career is hard. having a partner to do that together, having someone to be standing by your side in tough times but also in good times. if two people want to commit for a lifetime, god bless them. >> i don't want to prevent two loving individuals from having a life together. one of the reasons why i supported, in essence, a piece of legislation that would allow domestic partners to have health benefits and be able to be on their partner's health benefits, and i've come forward to say i believe that civil unions should be acceptable. so we want to make sure that they have these rights, but i do believe marriage is between a man and a woman. >> i believe two people who want to make this commitment, it should be marriage. this is why the human rights campaign gave me their endorsement. >> moderator: congres
it to the future in the new defense strategy as we try to work through what the rules of the different services are to the defense strategy, i almost remind everyone that going to be downsizing during this time. the army who went to beginning of county or 12 will go down to 490,000 active component by the end of 17. so we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army and now looking to the future. the main thing is we have to ensure we have the right mix. there was talk about the secretary of the army and i pay a lot of attention to. that's modernization, readiness. because in general terms, those are the drivers of our budget. you have to this imbalance. we want to learn from the lessons of past drawdown. some of the lessons is to kick it out of balance because if you get out of balance come you start to have an unready army, which leads to a hollow army. of course they talk a lot about task force smith and its impact and unprepared and assesses us to go to korea post-world war ii. we don't want that to happen again. for the secretary of the army and i have been clear that
has a little longer timeframe but payroll cuts are exacerbating the problem. and defense spending has to be on the table, too. >> you gleamed all the critical -- >> if you're going to have an agreement, republicans are going to have to give on tax revenues and democrats are going to have to give on entitlement spending. it's as simple as that. >> it is simple. >> it is real simple. i have repeatedly in the past been in favor of bull simpson. it would have been nice to do it. if we kept kicking the can down the road, the debt has grown bigger and bigger. the longer this goes on, the worse the problem gets. and the more the debt goes up. >> you see congress taking a trench on either side -- a lot of people disliked grover's pledge because they feel like it makes everyone feel more entrenched. you talk about independent spirit. a lot of times independent spirits don't necessarily come to the table in conversation. >> you need people who will serve in elected positions and understand their responsibility to govern. they need to make decisions. we have serious fiscal problems, serious econ
of defense. we talk with all the governors in the affected states as well as an awful lot of the mayors. i can tell you confidently that the federal government, state government, local government, they are doing everything in their power to coordinate relief as rapidly as we can do so many people who have been devastated by this storm. [applause] as tragic as it is, my mom, god rest her soul, she said, joe, out of something bad, something good will look --, if you look hard enough. my state of delaware was hit. it is a low-lying state. the hurricane went on shore about 30 miles from rehoboth to, in new jersey. my state, where my in-laws used to live, where my brothers and sisters live, they were hit pretty badly. i have a sister in law and family who live in ocean city, new jersey. you saw how badly they were hit. it is kind of amazing -- it is kind of amazing. a call yesterday with all the governors and mayors, it warmed my heart. you had the governor of delaware, the governor of connecticut, the governor of pennsylvania, democrats and republicans, and they were hurt. the governor of mary
to the red cross, we should say that that packers' defense you're talking about, charles woodson, gave a big donation, $100,000, that's great. a great example to set for the rest of the country. redcross.org if you're thinking. brianna, quickly, i want to ask about the recent polling that's come out in wisconsin, and while i ask you about the polling, i also want to remind our viewers that wisconsin is the home state of congressman ryan, and that would be governor romney's running mate. so maybe defying conventional wisdom, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for p
